Literacy is a vital life skill. The Tulse Hill Literacy Project (TULIP) is an exciting 2-year literacy project, funded by the London Community Foundation. It is designed to support adult speakers of other languages (ESOL) who have low level literacy skills in English to better achieve their life potential, support their children’s learning and well-being, and access local services and support through improved literacy. It will also help reduce social and civic isolation, and build local awareness, capacity and project sustainability.
TULIP will provide 7 fun and engaging workshops/events for 40+ families and 3 literacy short courses for 24 participants, with some crèche support. Additionally, in Year 2, TULIP will train and support 8 local volunteers to provide literacy support to local residents at drop-in sessions and a wide range of community events run by the project and local partners and stakeholders.
The first TULIP short course ran from April to July 2018 with support from Jubilee Primary School and Jubilee Children’s Centre with a number of very enthusiastic local parents taking part.
